About Pier 21
Pier 21 is a triple threat of cool elements: it’s in Galveston’s historic district, it’s chock full of restaurants and shopping destinations, and it’s right on the beach. On summer evenings, it’s not unusual to encounter live music from local musicians, and events such as the Fantastic Galveston Race often launch from this central, scenic destination. For a more active experience, you can even charter a fishing boat and try to catch your next meal out on the open water.
Wear comfortable clothes and sneakers, there is alot of walking involved.
